Abstract:

"In Freshwater Fish of the Northeast, the authors describe more than 60 different species, from the well known to the obscure. This colorful and helpful guide includes detailed information on habits, habitats, history, and more." "In order to best capture the look and appeal of these fish in their native waters, most of the images are based on the authors' own live catches. The pencil and acrylic illustrations render each species in lifelike detail, with close attention given to unique physical characteristics. Both art book and guidebook, this volume will stir some fond memories of fish caught - and a few of those that got away."--Jacket.
